Eddie Kennison Sues NFL Over Concussions

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Former St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Eddie Kennison has joined a group of NFL players now living in Louisiana who are suing the league over concussions.

A federal suit filed yesterday on behalf of 20 former NFL players is at least the third case of its kind filed in New Orleans.

Earlier suits and others blaming the NFL for concussion-related dementia and brain disease have been consolidated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
